I'm not sure on a couple of facts in G/S...

1. Is fire still affected normally by ice?
2. What are Dark and Steel's base (special or Psyical)?
3. What are Dragon attacks base??????
4. Is ghost super-effective against anything besides ghost?
5. What are Dark/Steel weak/strong to?
6. Are ghost attacks still based on attack scores?
7. Have any moves been changed to do something else like Tri-Attack?
8. Have any types been changed to be strong/weak/immune to anything?
Thanks in advance!

Time to show my G/S Knowledge! (or lack there of.)

1. Is fire still affected normally by ice?
Don't ask me!

2. What are Dark and Steel's base (special or Psyical)?
I think Dark is Special. I KNOW Steel is Physical...

3. What are Dragon attacks base??????
Physical I belive.

4. Is ghost super-effective against anything besides ghost?
I...have...no...clue.

5. What are Dark/Steel weak/strong to?
I know Dark is Strong vs. Psychic, and Super Effective too it. Otherwise, I'm sort of in the Dark (no pun intended, people).
Steel is weak vs. Fire, and Ground too I think. It's strong vs. alot of things, like Normal.

6. Are ghost attacks still based on attack scores?
I have no clue.

7. Have any moves been changed to do something else like Tri-Attack?
Not really. But then you can count the changes in things like Wrap (Magical Stadium Wrap!...sorry.). But I'm not sure of anything else.

8. Have any types been changed to be strong/weak/immune to anything?
I think Psy is now NVE to Ghost.
Besides that, I don't know much.

1. Is fire still affected normally by ice?

No, Ice is now "not very effective" against Fire.

2. What are Dark and Steel's base (special or Psyical)?

Dark is Special, Steel is Physical.

3. What are Dragon attacks base??????

Special (bleh).

4. Is ghost super-effective against anything besides ghost?

Psychic.

5. What are Dark/Steel weak/strong to?

Dark:
Strong against: Psychic, Ghost
Weak against: Fighting, Dark, Steel

Immune to: Psychic
Resistant to: Ghost, Dark
Weak to: Fighting, Bug

Steel:
Strong against: Ice, Rock
Weak against: Fire, Water, Electric, Steel

Immune to: Poison
Normal to: Water, Electric
Weak to: Fire, Fighting, Ground
Resistant to: everything else

6. Are ghost attacks still based on attack scores?

Yes (double bleh).

7. Have any moves been changed to do something else like Tri-Attack?

  • Bite is now a Dark attack
  • Karate Chop is a Fighting attack
  • Gust is a Flying attack, and can hit Pokemon using Fly
  • Thunder can hit Pokemon using Fly (I think)
  • Wing Attack is power 60 instead of 30
  • Whirlwind/Roar now work in trainer battles (force them to switch)
  • Wrap/Bind/Fire Spin/Clamp now prevent switching, and deal 1/16 of total HP damage each turn after the initial use
  • Headbutt works out of battle (knock Pokemon out of trees)
  • Double-Edge is power 120, not 100
  • Blizzard's accuracy is much lower
  • Counter works against all physcial attacks
  • Seismic Toss doesn't affect Ghosts
  • Night Shade doesn't affect Normals
  • Dig is power 60, not 100
  • Earthquake and Fissure(?) can hit Pokemon using Dig
  • Psychic's chance of lowering Special (now Special Defense) is lowered from 30% to 10%
  • Rage works differently, but I'm not sure how
  • Evade and Accurary modifiers are slightly less effective
  • Defense Curl doubles the power of Roll
  • Haze isn't as effective (only removes stat changes, not status ones)
  • Focus Energy works properly (50% boost in CH rate)
  • Waterfall is an HM, and lets you climb waterfalls outside of battle
  • Amnesia only increases Special Defense
  • Rock Slide can make opponents flinch
  • Tri Attack has a 20% chance of either burning, paralyzing, or freezing (but you knew that)

I think that's all of them.

8. Have any types been changed to be strong/weak/immune to anything?

  • Ghost is SE against Psychic
  • Ice is NVE against Fire
  • Bug is NVE against Poison
  • Poison is normal against Bug
  • There are actual calculated Dragon attacks, and they are SE against Dragons

    Yep, I've witnessed that myself from Red's Pikachu.

    I think that's all of them.



  • IIRC, I believe Dizzy Punch has a chance of causing confusion in G/S.

    Rage is kinda like Roll, when you are hit, your attack still goes up, but you have a choice to use a different move. However, you must continue to use it in succession to retain the power of the attack. If you break the pattern, your Attack goes down to normal. Get it? (did I note I'm horrible at explaining things?)

    Rage works like this: You use rage, if the opponent hits you, then your attack goes up, Next turn you get to choose wheter or not to use rage, if you choose to do so, than you keep the attack bonus, if not, then you lose it.

    G\S must have some very complicated code, Methinks there shall be a lot of bugs

    So when you use Roll or Continuous Cut, you have to select it every turn (using 1 PP every time), instead of it continuing automatically like R/B/Y Rage or Thrash? And if you pick a different attack, the power resets to 30? If so, does any other move reset the power, or just the ones that deal damage? How does this work with Defense Curl?

    That's cool, I had just learned quite a bit myself...


    Isn't EQ 2x effective vs. Digging Pokemon? (Normaly) I think Thunder may hit, I'm going to have to check.

    Water normal vs. Steel? Must be Stainless-Steel.

    Poor Magenteon users...

    Yeah, Quake is 2X against Diggers (not that many good players will be using Dig, its base is reduced to 60).

    And I would hope that Fissure gained accuracy while the opponent was Digging, too

    I enjoy mlmiddleton's insightful views on Pokemon and I hope that one day, I may be able to become half the Pokemon Master he is.
